More migrants return to Myanmar as arrests increase in Thailand

Myanmar migrant workers are returning home as arrests continue in Thailand for those without proper documents according to Kyauk Lone Gyi welcoming camp in Myawaddy.
        After new rules for employers and employees were enacted in Thailand, Myanmar migrant workers have been returning from Thailand since June 29, 2017. Officials from both countries coordinated in welcoming the migrant workers at Friendship Bridge and officials from Myawaddy district provided necessary assistance to those coming back from Thailand.
        Altogether, 82612 migrant workers have returned from Thailand starting from June 29, 2017 to June 20, 2018. Among the returnees were those freed after settling with the police with cash while the rest were those that returned home to apply for official documentations.
        “I was arrested as I did not have sufficient documents. We heard that arrests will be made at end of June but it started earlier. I had to pay Baht 100 fine to be freed from Immigration Detention Center (IDC). Those who couldn’t pay will be locked up for 3 or 4 months in prison. From what we understand about IDC is that it is a kind of prison. The conditions there are terrible,” said Maung Maung Khin, came back from Thailand on June 20.
        Despite the influx of migrant worker returnees, many left Myanmar for Thailand for employment opportunities via signed MOUs.
        Win Zaw, Information In-charge in Kyauk Lone Gyi welcoming camp said that youth between 18 to 35 years are leaving Myanmar to work abroad and the Myanmar’s human resources are being drained, highlighting the need in Myanmar to create jobs for youths.
